Marijuana vs Hemp
With CBD oil popping up in conversations all over, it’s beneficial to talk about the differences between marijuana and hemp.
Both marijuana and hemp come from the same plant species, Cannabis Sativa L. The plant’s flowering tops and leaves contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which we commonly know as marijuana. Hemp, on the other hand, uses seeds and fibers from the stalks and contains low levels of THC and high levels of CBD (cannabidiol). Hemp plants must contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered “industrial hemp”.
CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and neuro-protective properties, and may possibly help with a variety of conditions including anxiety, depression, pain, sleep, mood, memory and digestion). CBD is non-euphoric, but still may help support the body’s natural processes.
